Portfolio View is not correct.

After a transition to new accounts (created by my broker because of something too complex to include here), my Portfolio View contains stocks I have sold in all my accounts. Some of these show negative shares while most show positive shares. I have been balancing the cash vales of these accounts monthly, and they all balance. What would be the easiest way to get the accounts in MD to agree with the accounts at my brokerage without compromising the accounts?

    Hi cscj01,

    Would entering a Sell equal to the number of positive shares and a Buy equal to the number of negative shares at a $0.00 value solve the anomaly?

    It probably would, but this situation is strange indeed. In one case, the stock that was added to the account is with a BuyXfr transaction because it was with another broker. However, the sell is a Sell transaction. That should work just as a Buy and Sell pair I would think. In some of the others, I have found transposed numbers for the number of shares, i.e., Buy = 213, Sell = 231. So other than the BuyXfr on the transfer and Sell, I probably did the same thing. I'll update this with what I find after I've gone through each. In fact, I probably should have done that in any case, but I am dealing with an OS issue, and I'm getting a little frustrated with it. I suppose it made me short-sighted. Thanks for your response.
